Patagonia and three capitals
Tours to Patagonia: Argentina & Chile
Optional extension: Uruguay
Patagonia is one of the most beautiful places on earth to explore and yet it is literally at the end of the world. For most of the travelers it is one in a lifetime experience. That is why our tours to Patagonia cover both Chilean and Argentinian parts of Patagonia for deep and diverse adventure. When our Patagonia tours give opportunity to opt out of any activity, Patagonia is definitely a destination for active travelers that love outdoors and hiking. We offer only 1-2 Patagonia tours per year to make sure that those are well prepared and exceptional. We stay in comfortable mid-range hotels and focus on moderate hiking trails.

Working with Colibri Boston was absolutely the best decision we made for our trip to Patagonia. At first I tried to plan tours to Patagonia on my own. It was the hardest travel related thing I have ever seen. It all looks easy and compact on the map but this is an enormous area with challenging terrains, super difficult logistically and you need to have it organized to the dot to be able to do the itinerary we covered in just 10 days. The team at Colibri Boston ensured that traveling around Patagonia went as seamlessly as possible. My partner and I together with a group of 8 other travelers went from Santiago de Chile to Punta Arenas did the Chilean part of Patagonia and then we transferred to Calafate and did the Argentinian part. Each part of the trip was planned perfectly by Colibri Boston working with the local travel guides and transportation companies on the ground to provide the best services. Colibri Boston is the only tour provider we found that offered both countries with such an affordable price. All other tour providers told us to focus on one country or significantly extend the trip. We are beyond grateful! I would highly recommend booking with them!
First, you need to realize this is not your typical tour in the south of Europe. This is Patagonia and you will be in a wilderness, hiking, trekking and sleeping in comfy yet simple hotels. So bring proper clothing, shoes etc. Couple of travelers in our group clearly thought they were going to chill out in a resort judging by the way they packed. Fortunately the rest of the group was wonderful, easy and had a good idea on what to expect. Colibri Boston organized this tour is the best possible way. There were challenges like the weather but because they were so well prepared we just swapped the days for hiking trails and didn’t miss anything. The distances in Patagonia are huge so expect long rides but the views along the way are stunning so you would not be bored. Overall it was a trip of a lifetime.
Excellent tours to Patagonia, Buenos Aires, Santiago and Uruguay! It was better than I expected, and look forward to the next one. This Colibri Boston small group tour was my first, and it offered a great balance of hiking, culture, and a good sense of belonging. We were lucky with our group leader, and the local guides, and generally lucky with the weather. My strong advice: pay attention to the packing list: good hiking shoes, wind/waterproof clothes and travel light, as light as you can. The small group environment was ideal to travel around and do activities with. I did a large group tour before with a different tour operator and it was hell. In Patagonia it wouldn’t even be possible. At Colibri Boston they really know what they are doing. And our accommodation was extraordinary, comfy yet so unusual in a good way and I am an architect so my standards are high. Don’t hesitate - they are pros!
